My report card in kindergarten stated that I â€œwork well with paper and scissors.â€ Paper crafts have been a passion throughout my life, and in my adulthood, I have integrated them with my desktop publishing skills to create unique works of art. Recently, I discovered the wonders of Graphtecâ€™s Craft ROBOâ€”a computer-controlled cutting machine for paper, card-stocks, and lightweight plastics. Smaller than a breadbox, this amazing â€œnew toyâ€ helped create many of the models shown in my book, Kirigami, filled with 2- and 3-D papercraft, and origamic architecture. I hope it will save me from X-Acto cuts and wrist fatigue.
My latest book, Shadowfolds combines my love of origami and fabric.
I work as an author, graphic designer, and artist in New York City.
